Leveling Rotation for Beast Mastery Hunter

When using our slider, note that some talents may appear sooner than you expect them to in the rotation. This is because we have two recommended builds above, each taking talents at slightly different times, and sometimes entirely different talents.

  1. Use Death Chakram Icon Death Chakram as often as possible for hefty damage, if you are playing the Chill Mode Build.
  2. Use Barrage Icon Barrage as often as possible for hefty damage. Combine with Misdirection Icon Misdirection on your pet for huge pulls. This only applies to the Tryhard Build.
  3. On AoE, use Multi-Shot Icon Multi-Shot to maintain Beast Cleave Icon Beast Cleave on your pet.
  4. Use Bestial Wrath Icon Bestial Wrath on pulls and mobs that will survive most of its duration.
  5. Use Mend Pet Icon Mend Pet for large pulls to keep your pet healthy.
  6. Use Kill Shot Icon Kill Shot on targets below 20% health.
  7. Use Kill Command Icon Kill Command on cooldown.
  8. Use Barbed Shot Icon Barbed Shot to keep it from hitting 2 charges, and to maintain the Frenzy Icon Frenzy buff on your pet.
  9. Use Cobra Shot Icon Cobra Shot as a filler.
  10. Spam Arcane Shot Icon Arcane Shot.
  11. Use Steady Shot Icon Steady Shot as a filler.

Best Leveling Pet for Beast Mastery Hunter

All pets do the same damage, but they vary in their utility and special abilities. For Leveling, the best pet is any Ferocity-type pet, as they heal themselves whenever they do damage, allowing you to make larger pulls and rely on Beast Cleave Icon Beast Cleave to keep your pet topped up.

If you are having it very easy with a Ferocity pet, swap to a Cunning Pet for additional movement speed, but less pet survivability, and no Primal Rage Icon Primal Rage.

Ferocity pets also come with Primal Rage Icon Primal Rage, which is a Bloodlust effect. Use this as often as possible when fighting for over thirty seconds.

You can find a list of all the Pets and the abilities they bring on our Spell Summary Page.
